Local artists plan to share messages of care and compassion in light of economic, health, and racial equity crises during the Tacoma Arts Commission’s 19th annual Tacoma Arts Month.
Under the theme of “Cultivate Wonder and Care,” Tacoma’s artists and arts organizations are stepping up to care for the community in unique ways including virtual arts programming for all ages and pop-up art experiences.
“Tacoma Arts Month 2020 is a care package to our community, offering sustenance for the spirit as well as modeling and encouraging care for each other in thought and action,” said Heather Conklin, Chair of the Tacoma Arts Commission, in a press release. “Arts and culture invite us into a space of wonder, of curiosity, and creativity. It is a space that invites us to imagine possibilities, encourages questions, engages discourse, and sparks insights.”
Programming this October will include virtual artist highlights, community programs you can participate in online and experience in person, and a series of artist-led projects designed to engage the community on an intimate level.
